The Arch Of Triumph - Palmyra, Syria - Photo by Bernard GagnonDo you remember all of the buzz about the arch from the Temple of Baal that was supposed to go up in Times Square back in April? Well, that project was ultimately canceled, but now it has been resurrected in a new form. In April a reproduction of a different arch, the Arch of Triumph, was erected in Trafalgar Square in London, and now another reproduction of that famous arch will be going up in New York City on September 19th. This particular arch is not the same one that once stood directly in front of the Temple of Baal in Syria. Rather, the Arch of Triumph was constructed at a later date by the Romans, and it served to link the main street of the Colonnade with the Temple. So there is still definitely a connection with the Temple of Baal, but it is not as direct as had originally been envisioned.


The organization behind this effort is the Institute for Digital Archaeology. They are extremely excited to be bringing this project to New York next month as you can see from this excerpt which comes from their official website

There are few cities in the world as much defined by their architecture as New York. The Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge — all symbols of the audacity, strength, technical prowess, diversity and optimism of what Ezra Pound called “the most beautiful city in the world.” It is also a city that has known terrible loss — first and foremost the loss of life, but also the loss of familiar landmarks that helped inform the city’s identity. The Triumphal Arch, a symbol of resilience in the face of loss, will be a fitting tribute to America’s great metropolis. The arch will stand in Manhattan, surrounded by buildings adorned with classical features suggesting the common cultural roots of East and West. We hope that you will visit us this fall to consider the relationship between people and the places they inhabit.

Their website also features a public letter from their executive director which confirms that September 19th is the date when this arch will go up. You can read the public letter for yourself right here

So we have it directly from the source that September 19th is the official date when the arch will be unveiled.

I find it very interesting that one of the reasons why New York was picked was to remind visitors of “the indomitable human capacity to rebuild what has been lost.” Of course that is a reference to 9/11, and in his book The Harbinger, Jonathan Cahn has pointed out all of the parallels between America’s bold pronouncements to rebuild in the aftermath of 9/11 and Israel’s defiant statements as recorded in Isaiah 9:10…

“The bricks are fallen down,
but we will build with hewn stones;
the sycamores are cut down,
but we will replace them with cedars.”

When a reproduction of the Arch of Triumph was put up in Trafalgar Square back in April, it was also described by a major British news source as “an act of defiance”…

A monumental recreation of the destroyed Arch of Triumph in Palmyra, Syria, has been unveiled in London’s Trafalgar Square.

The 1,800-year-old arch was destroyed by Islamic State militants last October and the 6-metre (20ft) model, made in Italy from Egyptian marble, is intended as an act of defiance: to show that restoration of the ancient site is possible if the will is there.

Many people have never heard of the Arch of Triumph, but it is actually a UNESCO World Heritage site. The following is some basic information about it from Wikipedia

The Monumental Arch, also called the Arch of Triumph (Arabic: قوس النصر‎‎) or the Arch of Septimius Severus, was a Roman ornamental archway in Palmyra, Syria. It was built in the 3rd century during the reign of emperor Septimius Severus. Its ruins later became one of the main attractions of Palmyra, until it was destroyed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in October 2015. Most of its stonework still survives and there are plans to rebuild it using anastylosis.

I want to stress that this is not the same arch that once stood directly in front of the Temple of Baal in Palmyra. But according to Wikipedia it did connect the Temple of Baal with “the main street of the Colonnade”…

The Monumental Arch was built sometime during the reign of emperor Septimius Severus, which lasted from 193 to 211 AD; it linked the main street of the Colonnade and the Temple of Bel.[1] The arch was meant to integrate the southern and central parts of the Colonnade as its location marks a change of 30° in the orientation of the street.[2]

According to some sources, the structure was built as a triumphal arch to commemorate the Romans’ victories over the Parthians.

Once again, I think that there is something important that I need to point out. The Romans constructed this arch after a victory over Parthia, and in his extraordinary book on the Parthians Stephen M. Collins has shown that the Parthian Empire was largely made up of people that came from the northern tribes of Israel. So the original purpose of this arch was to celebrate victory over Israel.

Is that really something that we want to put up in New York?

And even though this arch did not stand directly in front of the Temple of Baal in Syria, it was part of the overall complex. In a previous article, I pointed out the similarities between the child sacrifice that would be done to honor Baal in ancient times and what is taking place in America today. This is what Jeremiah 10:4-6 says…

4 Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents;

5 They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind:

6 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that this place shall no more be called Tophet, nor The valley of the son of Hinnom, but The valley of slaughter.

Needless to say, we have killed far more of our own sons and daughters than the Baal worshippers of the ancient world ever did. Since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, more than 58 million children have been murdered in this country.

Another parallel between ancient Baal worship and what is going on in America today is the public exhibition of sexual acts. While sacrifices to Baal were being conducted, there would be wild bisexual orgies around the altars, and often large numbers of people would gather to watch. Just yesterday, I wrote about the crazy sexual orgies that are going on at Burning Man right now, and we have become a nation that is absolutely addicted with watching other people have sex. According to one study that is regularly quoted by Charisma News, an astounding 68 percent of all Christian men watch pornography on a regular basis.

So it somehow seems appropriate that this arch is going up in the heart of our most important city. We have so much in common with the ancient pagan world, and so it makes sense that we would want to celebrate their culture.

Unless something dramatically changes at the last minute, this arch is going to be put up in New York City on September 19th.

Unfortunately, most New Yorkers are not going to have any idea what the real story behind this arch really is.

    This one I suspect will go up. This arch is a sign. A sign we are on the same path as ancient Rome.And if we continue on this path. We will suffer a similar destruction.

    The Blood curdling Sepses of Septimius with sword, he’ll Severus, this September fall. Fall like Baal’l, so Severe US, is the Call. Come out of her My people. Rome is the Beast, Vatican the Whore, Come Out of her, My people and Shut that Door.
    Revelation 3:20
    Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
    Revelation 17:4
    And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
    Revelation 18:4
    And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

    IF and WHEN the Temple of Baal is erected in New York City then that city is doomed. So is London.
    This violates an agreement between God and the others. I do not really know who these others are. I suggest it is fallen angels. They are basically semi-immortal.
    When that agreement is violated then it becomes null and void.
    To you and me, that means that gods will come back to this Earth.
    When that happens I see a Civil War in the heavens forming.
    It basically frees God and Jesus to come back. The non-interference contract is null and void.
    Right now the Holy Spirit seems to be the only power on the spiritual world here. Satan also is here. Mainly spreading lies.
    In the 60s, Star Trek as a fictional entertainment referred to a Prime Directive of non-interference. Such a Prime Directive might actually in reality be real amongst advanced species in this area of the galaxy.
    If so, then the violation of that Directive would open up a real can of worms the world has not seen in many thousands of years.
    At one time, this world was ruled by an aristocratic society of immortals that presented themselves as gods. They were way above my pay grade and yours. Basically they were above all of our technical progress of recent times.
    I think what drew them back here was the atomic bomb of 1945. To me that is the key to their return.
    Since then the entire planet has been in danger of destruction and it has become more likely with every year that passes.
    Will they interfere and stop atomic weapons from existing here?
    I simply do not know. Baal as an entity and representative of this species may be real.
    But that also means GOD is real.
    We worship a living entity known as God, the beginning and the end of all creation. Jesus is his son and representative here on this planet with the power of judgement. He is networked with God, the Holy Spirit and himself. Meaning he has the keys of power over everything.
    At the tower of Babel, human’s speech was confused and chaos reined.
    At the flood, genecide was performed over most of humanity. A new humanity from Noah and family is described in the old testament.
    Was it to restrict the hybrids between gods and mankind?
    Now we are presented with atomic weapons and a humanity not capable of handling them responsibly.
    The broken contract means that interstellar critters can come amongst us. Some of which are far above us on the food chain. Revelations describes just such an event.
    What I say here sounds crazy even to me.
    But I find it to be a likely possibility with the Baal Temple at its head.

    “But the person who does anything defiantly [disobeys God’s Instructions] whether he is an alien or native born, that one is blaspheming the LORD; and the person shall be cut off from among his people. [Realize this was an act that was to be performed by the judges after proper inquiry and the findings were presented.] Because he has despised the Word of the LORD and has broken His commandment, tht person shall be utterly cut off. [The LORD will send this one to the Lake of Fire. One judgment by the judges, one by God.] (Num. 15:30-31)

    [Peter] Moses said, “The LORD God shall raise up for you a Prophet like me from among your brethren, to Him you shall give heed in everything He says to you. And it shall be that everyone that does not heed that prophet [listen to His commands] shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.” (Acts 3:22-23) This is definitely speaking of the Lake of Fire, a judgment by God, since the Jews couldn’t willy nilly put people to death and furthermore, even Jesus said they didn’t follow the Law of Moses. (Jn. 5:46-47 and 7:19)

    Th writer of Hebrews- “For if we go on sinning willfully [defiantly] after receiving knowledge of the Truth, there no longer remains a sacrifce for sins, but a certain terrrifying expectation of judgment, and ‘the fury of flame which will comsume the adversaries.'” [the last phrase is quoted from Is. 26:11). Again, a judgment by God!

    The fact the arch was publicly opposed to such an exent the sponsors decided to pull it, indicates they are not ignorant as to the moral and spiritual impact of their activities. Though they have decided to put a different arch there, the defiance remains. They may have been ignorant the first time, I doubt it. But surely they are not this second time!

    Unfortunately, the result of decisions made by our leaders does not only affect them. It would be great if it did as they might actually learn something! It affects the entire nation. This is why we are told to come out from among them and be separate! God is able to distinguish between those who are His and those who aren’t.

    America has abandoned GOD, now GOD has abandoned America. It states in the BIBLE “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and nations that forget GOD” Psalm 9:17.

    First amendment rights only apply to satan’s followers. I want to put up the symbols for my master, Christ and let others have theirs too as that is equal rights . We all get to share or no one does. This elite tried the later and people still kept their faiths. Now they have shown their true master and think we are going to give up the one we worship which promotes life and caring for others and FREEDOM . The push for the one world religion is going forward and the goddess religion of the devil is to be it and we all have to end FREE THOUGHT AND FREE WILL ..AND FREEDOM. COUP OF 2002 BY CONGRESS TURNED THIS NATION OVER TO AN INTERNATIONAL CA BAL THAT IS NOT A GOVT OF , BY AND FOR THE PEOPLE AND THEN WE ARE TO BE THOUGHT ZOMBIES AND ALL BELIEVE THE SAME THING OR WHAT WE GET ZAPPED BY OUR IPHONES AND SMART METERS? I had thousands of online readers in Russia of my personal blog and they got cut off a month ago and I ask no one to do anything illegal but do share my faith and personal journey for truth and justice.

      They won’t forget what you’ve said, though, and the seeds you planted will bear good fruit, if you’ve been sharing Truth, for God is the Truth and God always wins in the end. “Those who sow in tears, shall reap in joy”.

    Satan’s followers may as well put it in New York City. As you have pointed out Michael, the US has far out paced the followers of Baal in the number of babies killed each year. In New York City alone, 85 babies are slaughtered each day and New York has the distinction of killing more black babies than are born each year in that God forsaken city. Black Lives Matter–that is where the protesters should be.

      Amen, and in all the low income areas of cities, where the Planned Hood targets its victims, knowing that persons of color are more likely to live there than in the suburbs and rural outposts. They done did Margaret Sanger proud, real proud. Of course, our mainly white Congress critters have kept buttering the Hood’s bread for them, year after year after year, even until now. How can God protect us as a nation, much less, bless us, anymore. Individuals, yes, those who seek His face, the country, no.

  • Satans Arch is a curse on NY!

    By keeping Sunday instead of the Seventh Day Sabbath you are also worshiping baal.

    • Mistanick

      Joseph, somehow, in a way we cannot understand, God sees our hearts and where our worship is directed. Lot’s of folks can’t even make it to church at all but still love our Blessed Lord and He knows, He knows.

    “…in his extraordinary book on the Parthians Stephen M. Collins has shown that the Parthian Empire was largely made up of people that came from the northern tribes of Israel. So the original purpose of this arch was to celebrate victory over Israel….”
    has any reputable historian made such a claim?

    Typo – It’s actually in the 19th Chapter, not the 10th Chapter.
